The Honor X8 is now available in a 5G version, still at a low price

Recently announced, the Honor X8 5G arrives in France with several advantages. In addition to 5G connectivity, it boasts good autonomy and an affordable price.

Last April, we announced the arrival of an Honor X8 at a very affordable price. Good news for those on a tight budget, although it does come with some trade-offs. One of the most notable is the absence of 5G connectivity, which can put off more than one buyer in 2022. For the start of the school year, Honor is correcting the situation and returning with a 5G version from his smartphone.

the Honor X8 5G advances 5G as the main argument, in addition to a rather reasonable price (see below). This rather entry-level model also has a consistent, if not surprising, technical sheet. Inside we find a Snapdragon 480 Plus chip to ensure 5G compatibility, flanked by 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of RAM. Good news, it is possible to virtually expand the RAM up to 8 GB or add a microSD card (up to 1 TB).

The brand’s latest addition adds a 6.5 inch screen (LCD)displaying in HD+ (1,600 x 720 pixels) with a 90Hz refresh rate. The set comes with a 5000mAh battery which should offer a comfortable autonomy with regard to the technical sheet of the device. It is compatible with a “fast” charge at 22.5 W.

For the photo part, Honor offers three sensors on his X8 5G. Above all, it will be necessary to focus on the 48 megapixel main module (f / 1.8) in wide-angle, supported by c2-megapixel macro and depth sensors each. A classic formula and a little less ambitious than the 4G version (64 megapixel sensor on the X8 4G).

Price and availability

The other major argument in favor of the Honor X8 5G remains its price. It is already available at a price of 279.90 euros in two colors: black and blue. For its launch, it even benefits from a offer that brings its price down to 249.90 euros ; with a protective shell and an Honor Band 6 bracelet offered. Several resellers are affected by this launch operation.
